The Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod

The Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod has always been a safe place where children throughout the Cape could go to be inspired and to help realize their full potential.It is a place that strives to help our kids build character, as well as create opportunities to learn and grow.

And quality after-school programs like these have been proven statistically to make a big difference!Look at some of the latest stats…

A survey of kids that go to Boys & Girls Clubs across the state of Massachusetts are:

  • 83% more likely to abstain from sex
  • 98% more likely to abstain from cigarette smoking
  • 93% more likely to abstain from drinking
  • 94% more likely to abstain from prescription drugs
  • 92% more likely to abstain from marijuana
  • 88% more likely to abstain from vaping

So to talk more about these numbers, and the new before-school morning program they are starting in September, Kevin Matthews was joined by the executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod, Ruth Provost.
